A Real Gem on the north shore

  • 5 of 5

Booked this place last minute, we found the communication with host and owner to be very easy and smooth.

Noticed some negative reviews when we booked, but found the cottage to be incredibly clean and no signs of neglect. Owner stopped by to say hello and said they hired new cleaning service due to some bad feedback, their new caretaker did a good job upon our arrival. What we found to be the best part of this beautiful home was the LOCATION !! A quick 4 minute drive to Haleiwa town where we found Hawaiian food trucks,

the famous surf shops, many great dining options, this is such a cute and charming little village that we made a point to go there every day.

This house has insane postcard views, comfy bed, exotic design that was incredibly romantic and made our vacation extra special.

Beach is steps away and wow, words cant describe just how gorgeous those blue lagoons are right out front. Like we were in Fiji or Tahtiti.

Thank your for hosting us and thanks for the free snorkel gear... we saw loads of fish and even a couple of large sea turtles !

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This little place was simply paradise! I don't know if my family or I will ever get over the view!! The rental is right up against a quiet beach, and you are able to sit back on the porch and relax and take in the beauty all around you!

We loved the space, there was plenty of room for the four of us to stay between the main bed and the futon. Also, there were clean towels, and lots of beach / snorkel gear to choose from. The patio is now (thankfully) covered, and has two nice lounge chairs and a table to enjoy meals at as well.

One thing to note, if you are squeemish around bugs, be warned. Quite a few little friendly critters were able to enter the home beginning at dusk and lasting through the evening. Some of us got a few mosquito bites, but what can you really do? They were to be expected with us being in Hawaii and with so much nature all around us.

Huge thank you to Leland for making our Hawaii dream vacation come true!!

Most beautiful view I’ve ever seen

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is the most incredible view of probably anyplace. The surf break is called leftovers and is a perfect break for long and short boarders. There were Perfect waves and hardly anyone out there. In the evening the turtles play in the little “pool” in front of the cottage and it was super fun for our son. The water was calm and because of the reef especially at low tide. We had many great walks along the beach and enjoyed the north shore very much.

The cottage is a bamboo kit house which is something new to us and a cool concept. The cottage sits above a lower rental. We never saw the people below. The history of the house and the blue lagoon was something to brag about as well the views posted to our social media.

I do warn of outdoor insects and geckos that’s just because you are on the north shore. It’s an evening time event in any place on the north shore. Insects are around and it’s their area we are in. My suggestion is to keep the doors closed at sunset and don’t turn the outside light on. You can still hear the ocean VERRY WELL.

The insects will find the seams of the house and try to get in. We slept with the canopy draped over us as if we were in a tropical jungle. It was a unique experience. Some of the negitive reviews about overall maintence are somewhat true but I wouldn’t allow that to detour booking this house. It’s incredible and those are such minor things in the scale of what you get. Aloha!

Unique property, perect for a romantic couple

  • 5 of 5

Only knew part of the story of this historic property before we stayed there, although we'd seen the movie filmed there. Absolutely loved the unique custom bamboo construction and although we've had an annual pilgrimage to the North Shore for 20+ years, these are the most incredible views we've ever had, although there were some quirky wiring--TV on top of the fridge, although I have to admit that in a full week the view was so amazing that we never once turned it on! Great combination of accessible surf break ("Leftovers" on the surf map--North Shore beaches are defined by their relationship to the break in front of the property) with calm pools and a reef that protected a gentile swimming area, which is RARE on the North Shore. Best deck, ever, with elevated views of whales breaching, kids bobbing and surfers shredding--although it seemed so private because we never had more than a couple of people on the beach at any one time. Amazing snorkeling and spear fishing from the beach, a narrow deep channel cuts through the reef and attracts turtles and other large fish in close to the shore. Amazing responsiveness from the owner who allowed us an early entry, and gave us the equivalent of another full day in paradise.

Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

The location for this property cannot be beat. It is literally on the beach unlike others that say "beach property" trust this one is. The Decor is very cool, bamboo style, Polynesian and Indonesian mix. Balcony is just great to relax on and take in the ocean, waves and numerous surfers. We saw surfers out every day. Great beach to walk or peruse as well. Can get a great workout/walk on this beach.

Couple things to be aware of. This place is not "temperature controlled" to an exact temperature, so be aware of that, as are most Hawaiian places. If you get chilled easy, bring a coat or appropriate outfit for inside the home. I had no issues, but my wife was a "little chilly" inside. There are open screens to the outside on the upper wall that do not shut. You will hear the waves very pronounced through the night and also cars driving by the highway. Again, this wasn't an issue for us, but something to be aware of. We had a small issue with the hot water heater and owners were very responsive, and no issues after that. You will see little insects in the place, it's "beach place" so that comes with the territory and Hawaii. Great experience and again, the 5 start is the location. Just perfect for cruising all of North Shore.

Great Views But House Needs Maintenance

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here for 4 days. The view is fantastic - you can’t beat it. It was lovely sitting on the lanai watching surfers and just relaxing. The cottage has its charm and potentials for an outstanding vacation rental, but it desperately needs maintenance. We didn’t expect luxury set up, but was a little disappointed at the state of cottage. The reviews regarding large cracks on the doors/windows are true. They (large cracks on two glass doors) were still there when we rented the cottage last week. The light fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom are both missing light bulbs. One of the lounge chairs is broken (we thought we would be sitting on those lovely lounge chairs in the picture watching the ocean, but that plan was not doable due to the broken chair). We understand the challenge with maintanence with the ocean air/spray, but do expect the rental to be in better shape than what we saw. Additionally, the coffee maker has old coffee all dried up in the pot. It is obvious that it was not cleaned from the last use. Overall, this rental has awesome view, but the housekeeping and maintenance needs a lot of work.

To address some of the concerns raised in other reviews:

(1) There are more than 1 wine glass, and they are glass, not plastic.

(2) There are wine bottle openers (more than 1, including an electric one)

(3) The toaster does toast fine with no problems (more than just heat up), although it was quite dirty and rusty

(4) We didn’t have any issue with sharing the property with the downstairs rental. We only saw them once, never a problem. I was worried about sharing the property in the beginning, but it was not an issue at all.
